The Return of Ernie Bjorkman

Tom Green’s departure has crated an opportunity for longtime Denver anchor Ernie Bjorkman, who is poised to return to KWGN/Channel 2:

Veteran broadcaster Ernie Bjorkman will return to Channel 2 News on Monday, March 27, and move into the Daybreak anchor chair when Tom Green leaves Channel 2 at the end of May.

Since his departure nearly a decade ago, he has lived a relatively peripatetic life.

When he stepped away from the anchor desk in 2008, he became a certified veterinary technician and worked at several Colorado animal clinics. In 2013, Bjorkman joined the Peace Corps and traveled to Ethiopia. Upon returning, he moved into a houseboat in St. Augustine, Florida.
